#4252 closed Bug (worksforme)

Transmission 2.30 crashes on startup: tr_torrentSetSpeedLimit_Bps: Assertion `Bps >= 0' failed.

Reported by: longsail Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.30
Severity: Blocker Keywords:


I just updated from Transmission 2.22 to 2.30 via the official PPA. (I'm running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04.2 LTS.)

It crashes on startup/aborts with this short error:

~$ LANG=en transmission-gtk 
(process:10826): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
	Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module": cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
transmission-gtk: torrent.c:180: tr_torrentSetSpeedLimit_Bps: Assertion `Bps >= 0' failed.

I already tried overwriting my ~/.transmission directory with my daily backup from before the update but that didn't help.

Apport, Backtrace via gdb and ~/.xsession-errors don't report anything on the crash. Installing transmission-dbg didn't give me a longer error message. If there are any other ways to get more info on this bug on my end, please let me know. I'm new to reporting bugs ;).

#3746 seems similar, but I don't use nightly builds and the .resume files from my backup shouldn't be corrupt.

After reporting the bug I downgraded to 2.22. Then 2.31 was released. I thought I should give it a try, and I've now been starting and closing 2.31 multiply times without this crash on startup ever occurring for over a day. So I guess I can close this now :D. Maybe there initially was a corrupt file in my ~/.transmission directory after all ...
